NPR Misses the Point Entirely
Today's story on the Freedmen controversy completely failed to mention the paradox of the "Indian blood" argument in relation to the "one drop" rule imposed by the Dawes Commission. It falsely implied that none of the Freedmen have "Indian blood" and intimated (in spite of a surprising quote from Chad Smith to the contrary) that this was all about casino money. Overall, a really sloppy job of reporting.
